About Canon 1D Mark II

Canon's flagship EOS-1D Mark III is the most advanced EOS Digital SLR ever produced. It has a new 10.1 megapixel CMOS sensor (APS-H size) with Canon's EOS Integrated Cleaning System and a 3.0-inch LCD monitor with Canon's Live View technology. The CMOS sensor has an expanded sensitivity range of ISO 50-6400. 14-bit A/D conversion means fine gradation and a significant drop in digital and shadow noise.

With its generous 28.1 x 18.7 mm image size, the sensor captures every nuance of your scene from highlight to shadow. Extensive noise reduction ensures an extremely high signal-to-noise ratio. Framing is natural because the sensor's 3:2 aspect ratio is the same as in 35 mm cameras, and the sensor's large size realizes an effective angle of view that's just 1.3 times the focal length indicated on Canon EF lenses The 1D Mark III has a redesigned 100% viewfinder, a new 45-point AF system, and can shoot up to 10 fps continuously with a maximum burst of 110 shots.

Dual "DIGIC III" Image Processors work in tandem to speed up every process while refining image quality. A new, lighter body has improved weather sealing and shutter durability. Every facet of the EOS experience has been enhanced with the 1D Mark III. To combat against stray dust that enters the camera and adheres to the image sensor during a lens change, the 1D Mark III features a Canon-designed Self-Cleaning Sensor Unit. The IR-cut filter cleans itself automatically with ultrasonic vibrations, removing dust from the sensor assembly.

Dust that has been missed by the Integrated Self-Cleaning Sensor Unit can also be erased with software included in Digital Photo Professional (DPP) Version 3.0. The 1D Mark III's imaging sensor is able to single out the dust particles on its surface, then plots out their location coordinates within the image. This data is transmitted along with the image, whether JPEG or RAW, and can be either manually or automatically erased in Canon's DPP version 3.0. This added software option ensures the cleanest possible image, perfect for printing or archiving.

The Canon 1D Mark II is commonly used for Landscape/scenery, Photojournalism, Sports, Sports/action, Travel, Wildlife and more.The Canon 1D Mark II is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Photo enthusiast among others.The Canon 1D Mark II is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Canon 1D Mark II: Easy to use, Fast shutter speed, Great picture quality, High ISO performance, Large clear LCD, Simple controls and Strong construction

Outstanding camera and value

This is the ultimate DSLR. I've owned many cameras and there is absolutely nothing on the market that compares to the EOS 1D Mark III. First, this thing is built like a tank. It's confidence inspiring. It's also nice to know you can get caught in a down pour outside and not have to worry about your camera getting fried. The image quality is absolutely amazing.

Even at maximum ISO (H - 6400) the 1D still takes amazing pictures. Of course it really shines at much lower ISO settings, but I was really amazed at a concert shoot how well it performed at high ISO. The battery life is nothing short of amazing. You can go an entire weekend shooting and not even put a dent in the battery life. I've shot over 2000 images on one charge using IS, viewing images on the LCD and I still had 75% battery life! I was reluctant to buy a refurbished camera at first. But I knew that Admorama would take it back if I was not pleased. Am I ever glad I did purchase a refurb! It is every bit as good as new, it comes packaged with all accessories sealed from the factory and there's not a mark on it. You could not tell this was not a new camera by looking at it or shooting with it. I *highly* recommend Adorama's factory reburb Canon cameras at this point.

Easy to find, make a shot with the bodycap on zoom in and look for any colors on this absolutly black picture. I found red pixels. (From a factory refurb unit this is a shame for Canon especially considering it's price [$]).The firmware on this camera was 1.1.3 which is not the newest (1.2.3) and still know to have AF problems with tele lenses and bright background.The SN# according to Canon's website, was between the problematic range: "If the serial number on the bottom of the camera is between 501001 and 546561, it could be affected by the AF mirror adjustment problem..." who knows if that mirror was replaced at refurbishing if they din't correct a pixel error? These 2 reasons were the cause of the so many returns and refurbishings of the mark III's. (Great work Canon in your refurbishings!) By the way I like to mention here that I had a 40D brand new with the same pixel problems.I also had a 5D die on me after 500 shot diagnozed with controll panel problem...This was my 6th digital canon and the last 4 had problems within this year. I think Canon seems unreliable, has low quality controll. I have never had so many problems with Nikon, although I owned several. Good luck everybody hope this helps!

Dynamic Performer

By

from Dale City, VA  -  Photo Enthusiast

This was my best purchase. 1.3 crop factor may put off some but for me it works better than the 1.6 crop factor by being a bit wider. Additionally this baby just performs, producing images with low noise levels and consistent focus. I only keep my 5DMK2 for its wide angle, full-frame capability and HD video (when used) because it can not touch the 1DMK3 in performance. In low-light situations my 5DMK2 hunts but the 1DMK3 shoots and that consistently. I got a refurb and I am loving it. Beware, make sure you read the manual and go to photography forums unless you are a pro, otherwise the learning curve can be steep.

Be aware of this product

By

from Saratoga, CA

I purchased this Canon 1D Mk3 as a second body. It finally arrived this afternoon through UPS. Honestly, I cannot tell whether this body has been used before because it looks pristine to me. I placed the battery on the charger immediately and waited impatiently until the battery was finally fully charged. I plugged the battery and the memory card in, made some changes to the settings, and clicked the shutter button. I was so eager to see the IQ of this camera. Unfortunately, I then got the following much dreaded message on the LCD screen: Err 99 Shooting is not possible. Turn the power switch to and again or re-install the battery. I tried to switch the power off and on as "instructed", and I even tried to reinstall the battery to no avail. I looked at the manual and finally resorted to the Internet and found that Canon USA has already issued a free repair to address the very problem. You probably cannot image how disappointed I was. Although I have only waited nine days for this 1D3 to arrive, it actually felt much longer than that. What can I say?

By

from Port Elizabeth, South Africa  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I require the quick fps of the 1D mk iii, the resolution is fantastic, an absolute bonus. I see no difference between the Canon refurbished camera I received and a brand new one, congratulations to Adorama, the price[...] can't be faulted.

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
CHERYL M  The price was right and I really wanted this camera body for the IQ and low noise at high ISO
Shopper  Can you tell me how many shutter clicks this camera has?
William J  I don't know if the unit left at Adorama is the same but my unit looked brand new. The first shot had filename XXX00003. It came packaged from the factory in a generic white box. It came with software and all accessories packaged. Nothing seemed used. I had my reservations as well but I guess refurbished does not mean used. Hope it helps.
